In 1986, the Texas Sesquicentennial gave Texans the opportunity to celebrate one hundred and fifty years of independence. It also allowed for an opportunity to view the Texas Revolution based upon new evidence and research.  The experiences and history of the people of Texas, Mexico and the United States converge to create a deeper understanding of the Texas Revolution. This establishes a historical context for the events and historical figures associated with the conflict, including context for; Anglo colonization, the politics of Mexico, and the Battle of the Alamo. Come hear noted historians discuss the state of scholarship on the Texas Revolution as we commemorate the 183rd anniversary of the Siege and Battle of the Alamo.

This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited so register today to guarantee your spot.

Miguel Soto, Ph.D., Professor of Mexican History at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
